Volunteer with us
Register your interest to volunteer at the gallery, and be the first to hear about our opportunities
Volunteers are at the heart of the Whitworth.
We have volunteers who contribute and learn across a variety of roles at the gallery, from textile care, conservation and art gardening to digitising our collection and cataloguing our library. Assist in the delivery of workshops and exhibitions, volunteer with your family, help out with large-scale events and more! We hope to make each opportunity meaningful, no matter your background or prior experience.
'Volunteering at the Whitworth has made me a lot happier, given me purpose. I feel like a part of society once more, and making a positive difference in other people’s lives' Whitworth volunteer
We also welcome enquiries from local schools, colleges and community groups about work experience and placements at the gallery.
You can register your interest in volunteering, work experience and placements here, and be the first to hear about the opportunities available throughout the gallery and park.
For any further questions, please do not hesitate to email our Volunteer Manager, Fiona Cariss.
Please note that we do not have the capacity to involve everyone who approaches us, but are always thinking of new ways to include volunteers, whilst making each experience and opportunity meaningful for our existing volunteers.
